Fear is the driving component to either move you forward or to stop you in your tracks. The choice is always yours; you can turn around and run away or you can move toward that which you fear. Failure is an option; fear is not. When you turn from the wall of fear and go back to your comfort zone, life still goes on, but you miss out on everything that is on the other side of the wall—all the opportunities that may come from going through the wall and struggling past your fear.
Fear is not an indicator that you are doing the wrong things, that you don’t have talent, education, or that you are in the wrong place. Many times in life you can be on the right path, pursuing your dreams, but you are scared to death.
